Brighter, trendier colours work for living but No, No, not for selling!

The colours we home stagers choose for our home sellers are typically neutrals. They can be neutral beige, green or blue but they are never too bright although they could be trendy.The colours I choose for my home owners who are living in their home are a totally different story. Read on…

I have been working with a client for years now and I started out doing a redesign for her. Since I am also an interior decorator I selected new upholstery fabrics for her two chairs, selected new window treatments, helped her purchase a new dining room table with custom upholstered chairs, and shop for her on occasion to update the look of her home. They thought they might sell but they looked around and decided to stay put and do some updates with paint colours and a few other small accessories.

So their dull and dated dining room went from blah…to WOW! and all with some colour that jazzed this boring room up!

Tired green dining room...

 

WOW! this is gorgeous and has so much life!

 

Sitting Room is so outdated and tired...

 

She was 'over the moon' with this colour choice!

Proud owner of PRES Staging® and expert home stager. I naturally started drawing interiors when I was very young. I see finished projects completed in my minds-eye as the client explains to me how they would love to see their space created. I then can draw sketches quickly to produce this vision right then and there with the client. My creative talents led me to full time work as a career counsellor working with people, designing workshops, facilitating groups when the economy did not support the luxury of home improvements. My many talents in this field was a happy marriage to own PRES the Professional Real Estate Staging Centre. Helping others start and run their own home décor businesses for redesign and staging, learning design principals and building confidence brings me great joy and passion. Working with people and helping them make confident decisions comes easy to me.
